This sermon is based on 1 Samuel 9-11, Saul's anointing and appointing as king, and his first battle which established his credibility before the people. The question of God's sovereignty stands central - the God who is behind all events, yet the room for personal choices for good and for bad. Note: the microphone battery cut off about two minutes before the end of the sermon. Apologies for that.
